Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Song Suggestions? Playing at a Haiti Fundraiser Open Mic

Hey y'all,

A nice little cafe in my town is having a fundraiser this friday night, raising aid money for relief in Haiti. It's going to be an open mic event, with a meal served, for a $20 donation. Should be a really great event.

Anyway, I play guitar and sing and I want to learn a new song or two for this evening.

I'd love to hear some of your suggestions of songs that are appropriate for an event of this theme. Thanks guys and gals!

Some literary license with the lyrics of Standing On The Moon..........

I see the rubble that is Haiti; I can see the world's reply
I hear the cries of children and I cry out 'Dear God why?'
It's like a mighty melody that rings down from the sky
Standing here upon the moon I watch it all roll by
All roll by
All roll by
All roll by

I don't know - just let it come to you.

A few suggestions from Jerry's repertoire that might fit:

Brokedown Palace, Knockin' On Heaven's Door, Swing Low Sweet Chariot, China Doll, Comes a Time, Tears of Rage, I'll Be With Thee, Simple Twist of Fate, Shenandoah Lullaby, Drifting Too Far From the Shore
